Instant patoli with chickpeas and beans

In my house patoli/paruppu usli is made with chana dal. Chana dal is soaked in water for about 4 to 5 hours and then grinded to coarse paste to make patoli. You can find few examples that I posted earlier here and here. But not always you will have enough time to soak the dal. Hence I came up with this recipe and believe me it was excellent. I used canned chickpeas to make patoli.

Here is the recipe:

1 can Chickpeas
1 tsp Cumin seeds
4 to 5 Dry red chillies (adjust as per your taste level)
1/4 cup Dry coconut powder (unsweetened)
Salt as per taste
1 1/2 cups frozen French cut beans
2 tbsp Oil

Drain chickpeas and pat dry. Grind chickpeas, cumin seeds, red chillies, coconut powder and salt without adding any water. As the canned chickpeas has enough moisture you don't have to add any water while grinding.

Heat oil in a wide non-stick pan and then add this mixture. Fry the mixture on medium heat until it seperates. In the mean time, boil the beans in some salted water just to make sure they are slightly soft. Add beans to the fried mixture and fry for some more time until everything seperates and there are no lumps with moisture.

Serve it with hot rice. Enjoy.

Hey, that's such a great idea. Many times, I forget to soak chana daal and that times, I can use garbanzo beans, isn't it? especially if i want to use them in a paste form. Fantastic!
